New Member - Needs Help with Cardigan

Hi Amy, I’m new to your site (thanks!) and I have a problem with my latest knitting project - a winter white cardigan (very simple) for my oldest daughter. I have it all done but the border. My pattern says to k1p1 forever until it measures right for the size of sweater, however, I’ve been reading EZ and I’d like to try knitting it on. I don’t understand her directions for doing this, however. Can you help ? I don’t even want button holes ! hahaa

Does your pattern say to pick up stitches and do the ribbing until it’s as long as you want it? That would be the same as knitting it on, I think.
